Color Shift Puzzle By Oleksandr Shchotkin Puzzle app for all devices

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

Color Shift Puzzle comes from Oleksandr Shchotkin.  It’s another point scoring puzzle app game.

iPhone Screenshot 3 

It’s a ‘match 3 colors puzzle.  Here’s what’s different: the game starts with a blank interior (see the second image).  You may move – all at once – the pieces up/down or right/left.’

The 4 color version is way too easy.  I was relieved when I died at 25,000.

The 6 color version – my high is about 1000. I’m very curious how high others can get. Particularly those who really take their time.

I really like the graphics. What I don’t like is that the leaderboard is being run by google somehow.

Blocks & Shapes: Color Tangram

iPhone Screenshot 1    iPhone Screenshot 2

Andres Baksai’s Blocks & Shapes: Color Tangram is not exactly a tangram puzzle.  The object is to fill a rectangular grid with different shapes.  Again and again via 1010 levels.

At the moment, I’ve done a few easy levels and a few expert levels.
Andres Baksai claims that his puzzle is the ‘only puzzle with curved pieces’.  Hmmmm. I doubt that claim is true. However, I can’t name another packing puzzle app that does have curved pieces. In any event, I find his curved pieces puzzles to be more fun than the others.
I think these are good puzzles, but the 1010 levels is a turnoff. How can I possibly make a dent in that?  This game would be much better if it had only 100 levels – then I probably would have done a lot more.
This reminds me of another puzzle app game that came in 2 versions.  The free version had 1000 levels, while the premium had 10,000.

Color Dotz Avoid By Gong Jieyi

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

Color Dotz Avois is a dexterity puzzle app game.  The object is to avoid the spikes as Your Blue Man traverses along the circumference.  At no time is the entire circle visible. At most, only 90 degrees is visible.

Very tough.

Pop Color Puzzle – Smash Block by Kui Tan FREE

Pop Color Puzzle – Smash Block comes from Kui Tan.  The object is to place the squares in the grid so that the outside edges match and then explode. The puzzle is solved when all the outer & inner rectangles are gone.

Definitely an interesting game.  I’m not sure if the scoring has a chain-reaction.  There are 25 levels. I’ve done about 14. They get complicated & clever.

There’s an infinite mode where the object is to get a high score.  This mode is okay, however, it never ends.  There should be a much smaller grid for this.

Description from the App Store:
***Here come the most challenging color game: Pop Color Puzzle***
With 25 stages of blocks as well as various free modes, you will definitely enjoy a colorful game jouney playing with this puzzle game. It’s logical, predictable, beautiful and also it’s super fun. It’s more than a crush game, you can predict the score you can get but you need to think more logically and deeply to reach a higher point. The Infinity mode gives you smooth flow to deliminate the blocks. While in the Master scene, you need stratagy, even complicated stratagies to organize a serial of blocks. Only because it’s one shoot, you only have once chance to make it as perfect as you can. 

One more, one more block! You will always say this to yourself when you play this game. Sometimes you are so close to it and you just need a little help. Don’t worry, call a Bomb to help if you stuck. The bomb has no magic, it just clears any blocks you choose and give you a chance to continue.

How to play:
1. Place color blocks next to one another to match colors and make combos.
2. Once a color of the block is removed the next color layer is active setting off a chain reaction.
3. Place all the blocks correctly to eliminate all your pieces and get the highest score possible.
4. Use a tip or bomb smartly when you meet a stuck.

*The more blocks cleared in one move, the higher bonus you will get!
*Try to finish each puzzle with “Perfect”, that means try to get the highest points as you can.
*Don’t forget to share a pictures to your friends when you make a break. Ask them to challenge you!

Come on and play Pop Color Puzzle, burn you brain!

Tom’s thoughts: this game is similar to a few other games. Unfortunately, I don’t remember those titles. I solve all 40 of the ‘hard’ 7×7 levels.  Not so hard. But still fun.

Dots Color Match – Tap & Connect Puzzle Game

iPhone Screenshot 2                       iPhone Screenshot 4

Alan Kong  has come up with an interesting test-your-reflexes game.  As the colored balls fall from the top, you must rotate your polygon by tapping and catch the red balls with the red side etc.

It’s a good game. But the speed picks up too quickly for me.  In any case, it’s another good game/exercise to ward off Alzheimer’s.

Color Shape Tile Puzzle: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 2              iPhone Screenshot 1

Nick Waters has produced a solid puzzle app game called Color Shape Tile Puzzle. The object is to place all the tiles onto the grid by following the rules from the first image. Essentially, either color matches or the shape matches.  It’s an interesting variation on the traditional edge-matching tile puzzles. (I have a friend who regularly attends the International Puzzle Party; he has an enormous collection of edge-matching puzzles.)

There are 4 levels of difficulty. The easiest uses a 4×4 grid, while the hardest uses a 7×7 grid. I’ve solved puzzles at each difficulty level.

The puzzles seem to be randomly generated each time. Which is good and bad. Good, if you want to keep playing this game forever. Bad, if you’re the type that wants a set of 50 or 100 levels and solve them all with a sense of accomplishment.

I like this concept. However, there are multiple solutions, which make the expert levels not that hard.

La Palette Color Ballz by Nadezhda Sidorova

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 5

La Palette Color Ballz comes from Nadezhda Sidorova. (I’ve always liked the name Nadezhda.) It’s a ‘match-3′ game.  There are hundreds of match-3 games.  The most famous: Bejeweled and Candy Crush.

I normally ignore match-3 games. But I decided to download this only because I love the icon.

Cover art

The actual game itself is pretty good. First of all: colors mix. Second: the whites never match-up.
There are other elements, borrowed from Candy Crush, but that’s okay.

La Palette Color Ballz has a lot of charm.  There are 61 levels and at the end of each, you are rewarded with a quote. For example: don’t blame the rain, it can’t fall up.

Color 6 by Tigrido FREE

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

This past weekend I saw the image of Color 6 and just passed it by. Seemed like another ‘packing puzzle’ and I didn’t scrutinize this properly. Big thanks to Loyal Blog Follower David Cole for alerting me about this game. It’s seriously good.

iPhone Screenshot 3  iPhone Screenshot 4

Color 6 is a point scoring puzzle app. The object is to make perfect hexagons of a single color. Each one made is 1 point, then it disappears. I played this game 3 times last night. This morning I played it once and almost got to work late.

One feature I really like is the color-blind mode. I wish other games would adopt this idea.

My high score is 169. This places me in the middle of 55,000 people. The game came out last week. How did it get so popular? Maybe it was featured by the App Store.

It is possible to form 2 hexagons at the same time. If they overlap, only 1 point will be given.  If the 2 hexagons do not overlap, only 2 points are given.  I’m a bit mystified as to how so many people have scores in the thousands.

Warning: this game is very addictive.
